Adjusting to Earth’s gravity affects every astronaut differently, for David Saint-Jacques getting his equilibrium back to normal has been one of the issues.
That was one of the comments Saint-Jacques made during his first news conference after landing late last Monday night.

During the news conference he was accompanied by the Canadian Space Agency’s Natalie Hirsch, exercise and nutrition specialist, and Raffi Kuyumjian, the flight surgeon.
